As administrators at Rensselear's Saint Joseph's College debate whether the school will be closed more than just the 2017-2018 school year, Purdue's president has offered to take in students who wish to transfer.

A letter from Purdue President Mitch Daniels to Saint Joseph's President Robert Pastoor Friday promises what Daniels calls "concierge-level service" to any student wishing to transfer, including waiving Purdue's usual $60 application fee.

Daniels proposes sending a team of Purdue staff to the Rensselaer campus for a day to facilitate the transfer process.

However, the letter does say transferring students are not guaranteed on-campus housing in the fall.
